After a lengthy deliberation, a North Carolina jury has reached a verdict in the John Edwards mistress-and-money trial.

John Edwards Jury Reaches Verdict
They all want to date him ?
If it takes 9 days, it’s not looking good for the prosecution. I’m thinking he’s got a 50/50 chance at walking.
You can’t use campaign funds to cover up an affair?
What, they passed a ‘Bill Clinton Law’?
He should go to jail for committing adultery while his wife lay dying of cancer. Typical liberal.
I hope this doesn’t turn out like the OJ trial, rather, more like the Scott Peterson trial.
Although he’s guilty I don’t think he’ll do any time.
This is a political prosecution anyway, to make sure he didnt make any more tries for the white house.
I think he may walk on this.
Hope I’m wrong ..
I bet he walks. I hope I am wrong.
Wow, good verdict, doncha think?
Is that juror guilty?
Were the checks written to a campaign account or ever deposited to a campaign account? I’d not, where is the crime?
Yup, I think this was husseins way of saying don’t bug me again.
I thought they would have got out of Dodge last Friday to catch the long weekend.
I don’t take this as a good sign. The jury was supposedly deadlocked. Usually a deadlocked jury breaks in favor of the defendant. Hope I’m wrong.
We the jury find in the above entitled action in the matter of Count #1 that the Defendant, John Edwards IS too sexy for his shirt!
They going after the concubine for taking the money?
